What is green witchcraft and how does it differ from other witch and Wicca traditions? This question is the starting point of the Green Witchcraft Diploma Course. Many people assume that green witches are nature-worshippers. Of course, to a certain extent, they are. But so too are many other witches of different disciplines. And while the green witch’s reverence for Mother Earth and her bounty may run deeper than most, the truth is, this respect for nature is but a piece of the whole part that makes up a green witch’s path. This course explores what it really means to be a green witch and how a person living that truth can deepen their faith even in today’s modern world.
Beginning with a definition of what it means to be a green witch, the course gives you an overview of the history of witchcraft. You’ll also learn how green witchcraft differs from Wicca, hedge witchery, kitchen witches and other practices.
